The Headache Care Center was founded in January, 1996, by Roger K. Cady, MD and Kathleen Farmer, PsyD. The following is based on an interview with Doctor Kathleen Farmer. Doctor Cady attended medical school at the Mayo Medical School in Rochester, MN. He completed a Family Practice residency at Mayo Clinic-St. Francis in LaCrosse, WI, and continued his work in Family Practice in Hillsboro, WI. In 1986, Dr. Cady assumed the role of Medical Director at the Shealy Institute in Springfield, MO, where he remained until 1995, and where he began his work in headache medicine.

Cluster headache is one of the most severe pains known to humans. This condition causes intense stabbing or burning pain in or around the eye. If you suffer from chronic cluster headache, you may be eligible to participate in a new clinical research study.

Individuals with asthma who also experience episodic or occasional migraine may be more likely to develop chronic migraine, according to a National Headache Foundation-sponsored study, recently published online in the journal Headache. “If you have asthma along with episodic or occasional migraine, then your headaches are more likely to evolve into a more disabling form known as chronic migraine,” said Vincent Martin, MD, professor of medicine in UC’s Division of General Internal Medicine, co-director of the Headache and Facial Pain Program at the UC Neuroscience Institute and lead author in the study. Dr. Martin is Vice President of the National Headache Foundation.

Curelator Headache Population Map Displays Trigger & Protector Profiles for 150 Migraineurs

Curelator Headache is a transformational digital tool that allows individuals to track and discover the myriad factors that are associated with: a) increasing; b) decreasing; or, c) have no effect on their risk of migraine headaches. The Company collaborated with some of the world’s leading migraine neurologists to develop a comprehensive list of migraine triggers and symptoms, which were translated visually into a series of pictorial icons titled, Visual Migraine Language (VML) (Figure 1). VML factors and symptoms must be tracked daily for 45 to 90 days before an individual’s maps can be generated based on the analysis of their data.

Q: I am 20 years old, and I had a weird incident in August. I was sleeping, and I woke up with blurred vision. I had a terrible headache and felt like I was about to vomit. It lasted about 2 to 3 hours. I went to the doctor, and he didn’t find anything. Two days later I had the same thing happen. I went to a different doctor and again, nothing. Do you think it’s a migraine with aura?
